Justice minister: Fees could be looked at again

Justice minister Helen Grant told the Today programme that tribunal fees could be "looked at again" if they proved unjust or unfair.

It's important to remember too that these are new fees we have committed that we will monitor the impact very, very carefully on women and other individuals with protected characteristics to ensure that justice and fairness is done.

– Justice minister Helen Grant
